    Really want to start a "memorable" moment... invite your freinds over for a keg party and use a WW2 flame thrower to start the fire... they will discuss that for years.

    Then build a Mash uni swamp with a non workable still in your backyard - you will be king of the hill.

    Why NON-workable?

    BTW, how did this silly thread ever get to four pages? Really. What do you think, kyratshooter?

    I think some of us heed a hobby!

    We will post about just about anything out of pure retirement boredom. Now I know why the small town I grew up in had seventy-eleven old geezers down at the courthouse sitting under the trees whittling and chewing tobacco back in the pre-internet days!

    BTW, I want to know how many fires you can light off one propane cylinder? I have seen that technique used more than once. Also seen the propane cylinder taken out of the stove to light the campfire!

    I know you can get 3000 off a Bic, I called and asked. Just wondering how many lights for a pound of propane.
    Come to the dark side, we have pudding.

    I think you nailed it, even for those that aren't retired.

    Here's an appropriate video (especially at 1:07 to 1:17) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHY8NKj3RKs

    Easier to buy than to make here in PA. Smacks of too much effort.

    Is it easily modified into a working one?

    I know you all have been waited with bated breath for this horribly beaten dead horse of a thread to be resurrected, especially kyratshooter. So, here goes:

    It turns out that the metal Zippo-brand fluid container is not really up to the task either. As noted above, I finally found some Zippo-brand fuel in the sporting goods section of Walmart (for some unknown reason, they don't stock it with the lighters and associated paraphenalia), and I placed it in my vehicle to see how it would hold up under high temperatures in the car. It bulged a little, enough to permanently deform slightly, but looked okay. I moved it yesterday while I was rummaging around it my car, and I noticed that it sloshed a lot. I have not opened the container since purchasing it. Apparently, it is not vapor tight, even though it's liquid tight. This was not even under Southern Summer temperatures.

    Of course, the "experiment" was a bit extreme. If you keep the metal Zippo container out of the sunlight, buried in your bag, it'll probably keep the temperature way below the level that makes it vaporize so much that it messes with any of the various seals in the can.

    The Tabasco mini-bottle that I kept with it is still full. It's the hands-down winner of this "experiment."

    Can you fish with baited breath? That could be a multi use item.

    I looked up "baited breath" before I posted. I've read a few threads in various places about misused/messed up words or phrases (like "back to ground zero" instead of "back to square one"), so now I check almost everything.

    It turned out that the term is "bated breath", "bated" being short for "abated" meaning "subdued".

    No extra charge for that.

    Sounds like your group uses "Un-common sense"

    In my Rondy gear, I had included a buckskin Bic lighter on a neck strap......vender lady was making an selling them...
    Used it to light my smoke when no one was looking....
    Didn't think anyone would notice.

    Anyway Rondy go to is Flint and steel.....w/char cloth.

    Wsa practicing starting my fire for a "fire lighting contest"

    Hot really humid day....was not getting a spark to catch....
    Young boy standing there watching.....
    Then says..".Hey mister, why not use the Bic in the pouch around your neck..."

    Never wore it again.....LOL.
